Scrap Happy- September 2020

Once again joining with Kate and others to share the things you can make with your scraps of all kinds. I am still working through my leftover yarn stash to create a single bed sized blanket for a care home. Progress has been slow but I’ll get there in the end.

I’ve decided to join the squares in blocks of four to avoid having to do them all at the end. I’m going for the width first and then just keep going down. But I was only using a limited number of colours to begin with which would have meant several the same colour in one row- couldn’t have that, so had another rummage and found some yarn to add variety.

I made some celery and stilton soup last week as the weather turned a bit Autumnal , and having all the ingredients in opened packets, including left over milk from the soup I made a plate of cheese scones.

They are so good, and to my mind the perfect addition to have with soup!

Do pop over to Kate to see other scrap happy posts, and maybe join in with one of your own. Love to know what you have made recently.

  1. Lovely post – crochet and scones! I am working on my first granny square blanket and I wish I’d thought to join them in groups of 4. Well it is not too late to start. The only thing is – I have not learned how to join them together yet!

  2. The blanket is great, and isn’t it lovely to use up those bits to make something so useful. Will you share your scone recipe? They look so yummy!

  3. I like the idea of adding lots of colors to the squares. It will make a sweet project. I had to look up Stilton soup. I was not aware it was a cheese so I’ve learned something new today. Thank you for that.

  4. Granny squares are such a great use of left-over yarn… and scones are always a welcome make for me.

  5. Must be an effect of quarantine. I’ve been in the mood to play with scraps too, and decided to make the Wooleater blanket, although with my own twist. And I love seeing other people’s scrap projects. πŸ™‚

  6. stilton soup sounds amazing along with those yummie looking scones. I think it is very clever to join the squares as you go and don’t have such a big job in the end.

  7. Those cheese scones do look like the perfect soup acompanient. And the blanket , so bright and cosy. X

  8. Your soup and scones sound just delicious! And I love your scrap afghan so far – nice mix of colors, and very cheery!

  9. I like all the colourful squares – and those scones do look amazingly delicious, not to mention celery and stilton soup – oh my soul. I wish I could come for lunch.. Maybe you would teach me to crochet as well!

  10. Agreeing with Ann above. Have been wondering what else to do with celery, as it seems very under-appreciated around here. Cheese scones are always grand — am enjoying one virtually, thank you.! πŸ˜‰ Lol!

  11. Can you share your recipe for celery stilton soup? Sounds delicious!

  12. looks like the scones have stolen the limelight ^^ bet they were yummy!

  13. ScrapHappy Scones! Why has no-one thought of scraphappy food before? It’s genius!

    • Using up scraps of food is very satisfying- since you know what I have been doing bigger shops and it seems to cause more waste, very annoying.

      • Very little waste happens here due to hungry dog and greedy people! But a large pot of ’empty the fridge’ soup doesn’t make a very exciting scrappy post, as opposed to your very tasty looking scones πŸ™‚

  14. I like the look of the dark squares intermingled with the light ones. Look forward to seeing it when finished.
    Cheese scones….my favourite along with cheese straws. The Golfer’s mother (my MiL) made both with a flair I’ve never been able to match. Bet yours tasted good – they look good. And really they are made from a bit of this and bits of that are they.

  15. The blanket will be such a lovely cosy comfort – and so are the scones – I have never been very successful at making them, but yours look perfect.

  16. The scones look amazing and the soup sounds delicious! I love all your little squares πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Katie. I used to get cheese scones from one of the three bakeries in Pickering- still to find one here and I was really missing the cheese scones- solution make them myself.

  17. Lovely little squares will make cosy blanket for somebody – but, let’s talk about those scones! πŸ˜‹

  18. Yum, those scones look scrumptious. Someone in the home will absolutely love that blanket when it’s finished. xx

    • First time I made them and they were surprisingly good- my scones are usually not so nice- hoping it’s the new oven and fruit scones will be ok too.
